    A single diamond drops
    As teardrops hit the floor
    Different from the others
    Created from the depths
    Of hope and sadness
    Broken by a harsh reality
    Only a blink in time
    But an eternity spent
    While the diamond falls
    Hides itself from view
    Striking a dark tile
    Taking the shade as it's own
    A tiny piece of coal
    May not be beautiful
    But easier to hold
    Crystaline perfection
    Beneath a silent shell
    The diamond fell
    Then turned to coal
    With obsidian heart
    And shadowed soul

    Ohhhhh just let me breathe
    Let me just sit here
    For a single, silent moment
    After this beautifully crafted read

    And
    Breathe

    words cannot convey what you've already whispered to me
    In air

    *exhale*

    Feeling this one,most people can't see how symbolic this is. But it's the inside that count's I like this one a lot.

    :)

    Thanks for the responses ;), sorry I'm not more prolific in posting scribes, but life tends to keep me busy.

    Anyway :), good that you saw the symbolism, but I suppose thats expected from a group who gets jaded with some of the amazing poetry around here. Keep the pen moving everyone. I'm just glad to have found many of you again.
